In 2008 SHRC dismissed application seeking regulation of fee in private sector of education
Private schools continue to loot parents in name of education

SRINAGAR, Nov 16: As the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) has over the years limited its mandate to listen to the alleged human rights violations and pass orders in this regard some of the other basic human rights of the people have taken a back seat.
The limitation of mandate by the SHRC has meant that people hesitate to approach the commission on matters which relate to the other human rights. Same has happened with respect to an issue that has assumed alarming proportions in the state over the past few decades especially in last one decade.
In 2008 the SHRC passed an order with respect to a complaint filed by a civil society activist with respect to the fee charged by the private schools in Kashmir valley. In the order the commission said that the decision in this regard has to be taken by Director School Education Kashmir.
"This application was submitted by Farhat Hussain Subla, civil society activist in which he has stated that the Commission should intervene for uniformity in fee structure for schools in the valley. I have examined this application. The management of the schools and the fee structure is not unnoticed by the Government of J&K," said H U Bhat, Acting Chairperson, J&K SHRC in the order dated 31-1-2008.
The order further reads, "This problem can be well sort out by the minister concerned and this commission need not indulge in this type of matter which is beyond the scope of hearing. The petitioner should straight away approach to the Hon'ble Minister of Education J&K. Application is dismissed. The file shall go to records."
Farhat Subla had moved the application after the parents raised hue and cry that they are being over charged by the management of respective private schools. He had hoped that SHRC would intervene and issue necessary orders in this regard so that justice is delivered to the parents, but that was not to be.
It would be in place to mention that the private schools operating in the state are virtually looting the parents of the students by demanding exorbitant fee from them. The schools are also resorting to other means such as demanding donation fee from the parents and in most of the schools the donation fee crosses one lakh rupees.
At the same time the schools are coercing the parents to buy the school books from a particular bookseller thus earning huge commission from such book sellers. The parents of schools are also forced to buy school uniforms from some of the shops and here the commission is too fatty for the school management.
For example a private school charged students of fourth class around Rs. 2200 as cost of books. The rates of English, Maths, Environmental Science, Urdu, Hindi and Computer are Rs. 400, 310, 299, 255, 280 and 220 respectively. This trend is followed by almost all the leading schools of Kashmir and Jammu divisions and loot is going on in the name of education.
